Gold Spellbinders...

Happy Friday,

I hope you all don't mind but the shows this week mean that I haven't been able to finish the Vintage Friday for this week However I will post this on Sunday instead!

I thought I would share 2 more samples from this weeks Spellbinders shows starting with this card which was the last demo on last nights show so if you want to see how this one was made simply click on rewind for 7pm Thursday!

I used the Spellbinders Stripe swirl panel to make this the background and main panel is made using this die simply repeated for the background and used with the outline die for the main element.

The centrepiece is made up from the Lacework buttons and the d-lite heart die that was on the show.
The second card is made using the same panel this time cut into a gate fold card with the dot matrix embossing folder and baked peach colour cloud on the insert.  I used the medallion 6 D-lite die for the closure along with more of the lacework buttons.
